Penny eagerly awaits this one!

The Lovely Bones
in cinemas 18 March 2010


The Lovely Bones is Hollywood’s highly anticipated print-to-screen adaptation for two reasons. Firstly, the book (written by Alice Sebold) is critically acclaimed. It made the New York Times hardback bestseller list for over a year. Secondly, the film will be directed by Peter Jackson, the guy who also brought you the Lord of the Rings trilogy.


The Lovely Bones is a story of a teenaged girl who after being murdered watches from heaven how her family copes with her death. It is at once heart-wrenching and fantastical. Well, at least the book is, so let’s hope the film will not disappoint!

Look out for performances by Saoirse Ronan, Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weizs and Stanley Tucci.
